    Well, I'd be surprised if he didn't get fined.

    He's still the only one smart enough to bring the first World Series title to any Chicago team since 1917, with a team that wasn't all that great.

    I'll throw in my 2 cents...growing up a Cub fan made the transition to ISU easy. :)

    You aren't buying into the Twins, I'm guessing?

    No the twins will do what they always do.... play good until about 2 weeks left in the season and then crash and burn. This is the year of the cubs.... good pitching, defense, and offense... it's gotta happen this year!!

    Not sure why this is news this time. He's admitted it before.

    Or it doesn't.

    I'm not convinced the Angels will lose more than 10 games before next season at this rate.

    The Angels have my pick as World Series champs at this point in time. They can outslug you or they can small ball you to death, and they have solid pitching.

    Back to the topic: Anyone who believes players don't get thrown at needs to watch baseball. It's no wonder a lot of the studs get hit more than the people you've never heard of. This isn't simply because the studs stand closer to the plate either
